    If everything for OKC clicks then they could finish 2nd, although 4th is a safe bet. I doubt we see them at their full potential (if it ever happens) until January at the earliest. The West is going to be fun to watch, though. At least until the DUBS shit on everyone in the playoffs.

    West
    GS (70+ wins)
    Hou
    SA
    OKC
    Minn (could be lower but Butler and Kat are studs)
    Por (continuity will help them get to a good start)
    Den (starting to be overrated)
    LAC (could easily be Utah or no)

    Nw division is stacked.

    East
    Was (continuity)
    Bos
    Cle (their peak is obviously highest but IT is missing significant time)
    Mil (breakout giannis?)
    Tor
    Mia
    Sub .500 teams.

    Warriors gonna spank that ass

    East finals won't be Cavs Celtics

    Mvp- Steph
    Roy- Ball
    MIP- Russell
    6th man- JR Smith
    Dpoy- Draymond

    Houston, a team so full of pussies their own coach is in the media clowning their best player for being soft.

    My NBA predictions:

    • No one will seriously challenge the Cavs in the East. Given the drastic amount of changes to the roster, Boston will take a slight step back this season (but will rebound next season).
    • The best four teams in the NBA will be from the Western Conference
    • Joel Embiid will play 60+ games this season but Philly will still miss the playoffs
    • Minnesota will make the playoffs
    • Denver will make the playoffs
    • The Lonzo Ball show will not live up to the hype (both the good and the bad). He will have a solid, but unspectacular, rookie year.
    • Greg Popovich will emerge as the country's best, most trusted, and most bulletproof critic of Donald Trump
    and most of all...
    • someone other than Golden State will win the NBA championship. I don't know who it will be, but in Golden State vs the field, I will take the field.

    Would like for the Nuggs to be in the mix, it would be nice to see them play with some actual stakes. Do love me some Millsap

    This year Im setting my bandwagon expectations low. Im happy to announce I am riding the SUNS bandwagon! This will free up Minnesota to actually succeed.
